The CD-ROM drive is vibrating a great deal as it operates
Explanation: Your CD-ROM drive seems to vibrate a great deal when it is being used.
Diagnosis: This is just generally, in most cases, an indication of poor quality in the way the drive has been manufactured. In an older drive, it may indicate that the drive's spindle motor has become unbalanced. The problem is generally seen much more in the very high-speed drives than in the slower drives, for obvious reasons.
